Fares will be automatically adjusted against the increase in fuel prices – GPRTU (See Details)

The Ghana Private Road Transport Union (GPRTU) has announced that prices will automatically be adjusted whenever petrol prices increase by 10%.

The union says a 15% increase in transportation costs will be repeated whenever fuel prices reach 10%.

Richard Yaw Amankwah, GPRTU’s Deputy Secretary-General for Operations, told the Ghana News Agency (GNA) that the union’s decision to estimate transportation costs and fuel prices was intended to benefit the industry.

“We have said that whenever the cost of petrol increases by 10% or more, we will increase fares,” he said.

“We are still looking at the cost. We are just wasting our time. “The same amount will be spent on travel expenses when it reaches 10%,” he told GNA.

On March 1, 2022, the prices of the previous petrol and diesel pump prices increased by 30 liters per liter, to GHC 8.20.
Some market experts predict that if nothing is done to reduce the cedi value of the dollar against the dollar, petrol prices could rise to GHC9.0 a liter.

The price volatility of petroleum products is due to the continued increase of Brent Crude in international markets.

The Institute for Energy Security (IES) predicted a 4% increase in petrol and diesel prices this week, citing cedi performance against the dollar as a major factor.

The IES has ruled that cedi is down 4.11 percent to close GHC6.85 to the dollar in the previous price window.

The Chamber of Petroleum Consumers (COPEC) also predicts that prices for petrol, diesel and LPG by 4.6%, 3.4% and 2.5% will increase by 2.5% from March 1, 2022.

In the First Price Window of March 2022, it predicted that petrol and diesel would be GHC8.190 a liter and LPG would be GHC9.163 per kilogram.
